9:46 am
how did that change your life? >> going there made me realize the impact of these girls life. we joked that we were changing the world one cupcake at a time but when i saw the living condition, getting an education and the opportunities that would come along with that, i realized it wasn't really a joke and i needed to do more to help these girls. >> helping them in the classroom and also on the soccer field, something that you love that you brought to them. >> yeah. i've been playing since the age of 5, so i've never really thought about what soccer has done for me, but for these little girls it's taboo for them to play sports in their society so it was ground breaking. it really upset their fathers when i brought them out on to the field, but slowly but surely they started gaining confidence and leadership skills that translated into the classroom, and it was the first time i realized that's what sock her done for me my entire life. >> therefore, you decided to give up your scholarship at notre dame for soccer, and instead decided to launch the segue project to help support
9:47 am
girls both through school and also find a passion like soccer, right? >> once i realized this transformative role soccer should play, i knew i needed to expand the project, and to do that i needed to give up my role on the soccer team which was a really difficult decision, but at the end of the day sacrificing my senior season will never compare to the sacrifice these girls make to go to school, so once i came to that realization i knew it would be the right decision. >> you blew my socks off. easy to say why you picked her as pretty amazing for the cover of the magazine. >> lindsay is such a superstar, but we were most impressed by how selfless she was in helping other girls find confidence. confidence is the key. i mean, we want to help every single girl feel the confidence that lindsay feels and that such a special message that she has. >> and i imagine there were so many other great candidates as well. four other semifinalists so was it ultimately the fact that she was helping those other girls
9:48 am
then? >> in the last two years we've had 70,000 girls enter this contest, and it's -- you know, i'm so happy to be here talking about something great about teenage girls. this is the ultimate celebration of teenage girls. her message says to girls if a girl like lindsay can be on the cover of "seventeen," why can't i? we want every girl to feel pretty amazing. >> she's pretty and pretty amazing to top it off, and 13 million readers read "seventeen" so a real inspiration to all of them. thank you and good luck with you with the rest of school. senior year at notre dame. >> thank you. >> thank you both so much. coming up next, gives up inrbs and sugar without giving

and add calorie conscious ingredients to make it taste good. our diet and nutrition expert joins us. mah madeline, good morning. i'll terrorist you that it tastes good. >> people eat for taste. you want to eat healthy but taste is number one. you want really good food and taste which is what you want. >> let's start off with carbs. we know why our bodies love them and they taste so good, right? what do you do? >> really high in calories, and a couple of ways to swap this out is first to replace zucchini for your strips of lasagna noodles. use all of them or part of them and you'll save about 200 calories. >> will it taste the same? >> it will taste very good. a lot of people blend it because they don't want as many starchy noodles. >> nice. >> a really good tip that cuts out the starch all the way if you use the spaghetti squash. >> i asked you in commercial break, what is this? >> it's a squash, kind of like a pumpkin and when you open it up you have to cook, it doesn't look like this but when you
9:52 am
strip it down it's strands that look like pasta, top it with a tomato sauce, a meat sauce. >> can i taste it? >> okay. >> not spaghetti but it's good. >> i love mashed potato and how do we knock off a mashed potato? >> by using another white vegetable, something like parsley. mix them half and half with potatoes or just substitute them. pasnips are like carrots, cook them and mash them like a potato this. will cut the calories to almost nothing. >> this is what this turned into. that's like magic so let's keep going. let's see our next knockoff. fats come in the version of mayonnaise and things like that. >> sometimes we cut out fat, we cut out a lot of flavor. i don't want this. thick and gunky and what you can do to get the flavor of a rick and creamy dressing like butter milk. it's got some tang. >> i would think fat if i saw
9:53 am
butter milk. >> in current times butter milk is 1%. >> not in the olden days. >> not living on the farm anymore. >> i've been dissed. i am from the country. i thought it was fattening. what do we do in. >> use butter milk as a base and use a little bit of mayonnaise and sour cream to get the tang from the yogurt and put this on. this is thick. that's what people look for. not going to be watery. >> i'll be the tester. is it good? >> it's tangy, but i like it. that's good stuff. >> something people want. they want the creaminess of a soup. cream is a key word but there's going to be, just in a tablespoon of cream, five tablespoons of fat and 50 calories, what you can do is thicken up soups either with evaporated regular milk. that means take out water. you have the dairy product and flavor with far fewer calories, or kind of a lazy man's way. take instant potato flakes so if you were going to make mashed potatoes, dump in some water and
9:54 am
they poof and plump up and you have mashed potatoes. if you put these flakes in anything else, things you want to thicken, it will soak up and give you a natural blend. >> creaminess without all the calories. >> i'm a chocolate fanatic. probably won't convince me but i'll listen. >> these were developed at our nbc commissary here and the big difference instead of a cup of oil this is replaced with greek yogurt. it will give the thickness and creaminess because texture is important. i want you to taste this. >> oh, okay. >> you can cut down most of the fat with yogurt. >> you can put this in any brownie mix recipe and you cut down the fat from nearly a cup of oil to about two tablespoons. >> oh, okay. >> someone said don't do it as i was doing it. it's delicious. i'm not kidding. >> again, these are not no calories. it goes from 200 to about 120.
